Mugabe’s Burial Postponed Indefinitely

The burial of the late former president of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe, earlier scheduled to hold on Sunday, has been postponed indefinitely, ZimLive reports.

According to family sources, the burial which was supposed to hold in Zimbabwe is not likely to hold again.

Mugabe’s nephew, Leo Mugabe, who is also the family’s spokesman, said the late leader was a chief and he would be given a traditional burial.

He said,

“Mugabe was a chief and he will be buried in accordance with tradition. The chiefs have not told us where he will be buried, so it is not clear yet. I also don’t know.”

It was reported that in some parts of Zimbabwe, burials of chiefs are a secret affair and people are only told the resting place afterward.

Mugabe died on Friday at the age of 95 in Singapore, where he was receiving medical treatment.

His body is expected back in Zimbabwe on Wednesday.
